1

list the TMJ movements

1. protrusion movement
2. retraction movement
3. elevation (and retraction) movement
4. depression (and protrusion) movement
5. lateral deviation movements

2

the movement in protrusion movement is described as?

both compartments gliding (translatory movement)

3

the muscles involved in protrusion movement is?

bilateral lateral pterygoid

4

side notes:

you are going to see a gliding of the condyle of BOTH compartments;
you will see translatory movements in both TMJ's;
you are going to see bilateral firing of lateral pterygoids most notably the inferior heads

5

the movement in retraction movement is described?

both compartments gliding

6

the muscle involved in retraction movement is?

bilateral posterior temporalis

7

side note:

you are going to have translatory movement again but this time it is going to be posterior fibers of the temporalis muscle. that are creating that movement

8

what is the movement of elevation TMJ movement?

gliding both superior and rotation both inferior compartments

9

what is/are the muscle(s) of elevation(and retraction)?

masseter
temporalis
and
medial pterygoid

10

what is the movement of depression (and protrusion)

same patterns as elevation
gliding both superior and rotation both inferior compartments

11

what is the muscle(s) of depression (and protrusion)?

inferior head lateral pterygoid and suprahyoids bilaterally (helps w/depression)

12

side note:

you need rotation and translation

13

*gliding one superior cavity and rotation opposite superior cavity is known as what TMJ movement?

lateral deviation movement

14

what is the muscle(s) of the lateral deviation?
*KNOW THIS!

unilateral, Lateral pterygoid
*KNOW THIS!

15

side note:

lateral deviation, you are going to have gliding in ONE of the TMJ's.
you are going to have rotation in the opposite ONE. and you are going to get unilateral contraction of the lateral pterygoid muscle.
